Report

Accessibility Review of European National Tourist Organisations’ Websites, 2012.(Report). ENAT benchmarking study. Between between August and October 2012 researchers examined 41 websites of European National Tourism Organisations (NTOs). NTO websites were tested for compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines - to see if they are accessible to people with disabilities. Secondly, the content of the websites was examined to see if NTO websites contained information specific to the needs of visitors with disabilities and other people who need good access.
